"high on code" i think you just coined a new term there:D
regarding that 'A place to pee', that's the craziest ideas i've seen in years, how much time does the average person spend in a urinal? plus, don't you need your hands to pee anyway? what would you use to play games?
seems like a nice idea but i don't think it'll go very far; much of what it offers only requires a little effort. Also, a fan would have to be pretty dedicated to agree to recieving advertising text messages from a band/artist.
Live Mesh really looks like a great product.
But it really only creates confusion since there are already a bunch of similar MS techs like FolderShare, Folder Sharing in Messenger, SkyDrive, Meeting Space, Remote Desktop, etc.
Same thing as on the communication front with a bunch of mail clients, IM clients etc.
Shame that these aren't integrated into a single offering so even inexperienced users could use it.
Eventually i think this is what will happen, if mesh proves to be a hit, they will phase the others out slowly!
